all they need are ribbons on both ears.....how adorable.........and as far as cats chasing each other......Zoe who is a "young-un" just loves to wart the you know what out of Sushie who is old and crotchetie.....I honestly think that's why Sushie is still around 'cause Zoe pumps up her blood pressure........as for dementia........my 85 year old grandmother was in a nursing home and my chatty Cathy sister was just babbling away about nothing just to keep the conversation going to a nonresponsive old woman.....finally my grandmother cocks her head to one side and comments to her "You talk too much, Brenda".........Brenda nearly fell out of her chair.......her hubby had to be picked off the floor he was laughing so hard..........cause she does babble........:):)

We saw the surgeon today and while the prognosis for my knee was neither good nor bad, I had to smile at his comment. I said "so there's nothing you can do for me at the moment" and he replied "I can hold your hand and feel your pain with you". That helped a lot. He also said that he really felt bad that this wasn't going as planned. And I told him I have no regrets and would have him do it again in a heartbeat because my pain now is really nothing compared to before the surgery.

Then DH added to my smiles by buying me a beautiful new cane with sparkly butterflies on it (yes, there is some purple on it, of course!) and a plain vanilla sundae from McDonald's, even though I gave up sweets for lent!

Before anyone feels bad about my leg, the good news is there is no infection, no further internal scarring showing up and my range is actually getting better. As for the increased pain, swelling and problems sleeping, he believes that this will mend itself in time. While it is frustrating that there isn't a quick cure, I am happy that I can return to my work, my pool workouts and normal life without any chance of making it worse. All fears of blood clots and infection are over.

Yes, I still have to use a cane.....but now I am walking in style!

Glad to hear it Laurie. Hopefully progress will continue at a good rate.

Was TV surfing a little while ago because there wasn't anything on my local channels or any of the other dish channels that I cared to watch when I happened on an Illinois PBS station airing a special on "The Police." I have the speakers cranked up and I'm tappin' and smilin' my tail off. I have a full hour to enjoy!
